Domain Names were designed for humans, IP addresses were not.  But
more than 30 years after the introduction of the DNS, a minority of
mankind persists in invading the realm of machine-to-machine
communication by reading, writing, misspelling, memorizing,
permuting, and confusing IP addresses.  This memo describes the
Internationalized Deliberately Unreadable Network NOtation
("I-DUNNO"), a notation designed to replace current textual
representations of IP addresses with something that is not only more
concise but will also discourage this small, but obviously important,
subset of human activity.

Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any
